The Ultimate Football Welwyn Garden City Monday night six-a-side league is into its summer season.

In the Premiership, a seven-goal thriller played out between Litty Commity and SD & Carlton Cole.

The scores were level at half time thanks to goals from Kieren Pendrel-Smith and Charlie Lloyd but after the break both teams surged forward in search of all three points.

SD&CC looked to have the points in the bag when they went led 3-1 only for Litty to stage a memorable comeback with Mike Webb and Darryl Hall plus an own goal giving them a 4-3 win.

In the other Premiership game of the evening, Steve Charles’s Blackpool strengthened their position at the top of the league with a 2-0 victory over Sondico United.

In the Championship, it was back to winning ways for Francis Mardlin’s Neverbee Athletic as goals from Aaron Casper, Liam Walklate, and Martin McMullan led them to an inspired 6-0 win against The Mavericks.

Elsewhere, a very tight encounter between Flumpy FC and Stroke T ended with a 2-1 win for the former.

Team captain Chris Houghton put Flumpy ahead in the first half, only for Jack Reed to equalise but Houghton popped up again to sela the tie in his team’s favour.

Ethan Cooper’s The Toddlers almost pulled off a memorable result against top of the table Crude Crocs.

The Toddlers were two-up early on, but three goals in a row for Crocs, James Sopher and a brace by man of the match Elliott Sweeney the men on target, meant Crude took all the points again with a 3-2 win.

In the final game, Mark Zienkowicz’s Old Boys faced a resurgent Hedgehog side who led 3-0 at half-time thanks to goals from Ben Whybrow, Thomas Bundy and James Ferguson.

And another for Ferguson and one for Tom Plain meant a 5-1 win at the end.

Jason Coughlan got the Old Boys’ consolation.
